Hallcroft Fishery record smashed

The Hallcroft Fishery match record has been smashed after Steve Clark hammered out a massive 278lb 12oz to take victory during the latest event.

After drawing peg 17 on Outer Moat at the Nottinghamshire complex, the Mansfield-based ace decided to fish worm and maggot down the margins and managed to latch into 40 carp to double figures during the outing.

His weight ended up being more than double that of the runner up, with Steve Gray taking 133lb 12oz.
